    Yeah it seem's that a few of those have joined to vent and seem to have a penchant for creating their own pesonal "I Hate BTE" threads rather than posting their opinions in the already existing thread, although it seems to have cooled down alot since last weekend...

    I had moments of anxiety throughout the show (Are they going to end it with an "it was all a TV show"/are they going to write out Lister) However those only apply to my fears on a first watch and are of no consequence to me now.
    Other than that I think I'm clutching at straws but I'd say the only bit I didn't like was corrie actors appearing in it. I could have done without the whole Coronation street stuff and just had Craig Charles learning lines for some generic show he was in however I can appreciate other people enjoyed it and it wasn't actually as bad as I imagined it was goign to be. In fact it containe done hilarious one liner (Craig's priory joke).

    As I say though, that's a minimal criticism based on my own taste. I really enjoyed Back to Earth and hope Dave make a new series. Since series 6 ended Doug's never had the chance to do Red Dwarf with the original cast in the original premise so lets give him that chance.

    Sorry about that :eek:ops:

    Admittedly, I didn't keep my hopes high, but then I started to get into it...

    And I liked what I saw =]

    A lot.

    btw "only a kid????." It's 00:22, way past your bedtime :P

    There were only three bits that disappointed me. Unfortunately they were the beginning, the middle and the end.

    Im mad because im in america and have had to Watch red dwarf from Public television ever since i was little. Who knows how long it will be before I will get to see BTE in the states. Im not expected much to be honest. Red Dwarf has Sucked ever since the second 'Chanskie came on the show and ruined it.

    edit:Just saw all 3 episodes on you tube.....and...it wasn't actually half bad. Not as good as the original but I loved how they worked in the despair Squid. All in All..not bad.

    How could anyone think the CGI was a let down? Until I watched the making of show I had no idea the corridor was CG!

    And WHO CARES?

    3 things let me down.........

    1 - No Holly
    2 - No laughter
    3 - A story arch

    But there were about a zillion things that made it great, so I'm pretty happy with that.......

    1 - Rimmer is back
    2 - Cat is back
    3 - Lister is back
    4 - Kryten is back
    5 - Red Dwarf (the ship is back)
    6 - CGI is great (much better than expected)
    7 - Story line was really good (and I've only seen Blade Runner once, many years ago, and have forgotten about it!)
    8 - Jokes were very similar to the old series
    9 - Great to hear the theme tune again
    10 - Cats outfits!
    11 - Monsters!
    12 - Space Corp Directives!
    13 - The scale of RD was shown in a much better way than in the previous series.
    14 - Hints of a series 10!
    15 - Loved the ending
    etc...

    RAGE
